So lately Nintendo stated that the Toads are a gender/sexless race. They also stated that Toad and Toadette are just friends
Some peoplr have been mad about this. Me? I think its a neat detail. Even if its hard to think that the super grandpa like Toadsworth doesnt have a gender nor the cute and girly Toadette. However I thought that what if while this fact is true some Toads like to think that theyre male while some others like to think theyre female.

Specially that in japan they have gender neutral pronouns, so it's easier for them to work with characters without bothering to assign them a gender (i believe this is Kirby's case, they use gender neutral pronouns and thus never bothered with his gender)
MY revalation didnt have to do with the gender thing but rather it was why the series never was released out of japan( so yes my revelation was off topic xD) (Also the only Starfy character whose gender is contested is Wosaruto, a recurring character in the series)
I think they just take on whatever traits that are around them in society. So they can be either male or female. I mean, bob-ombs probably are like that too. They do not even wear clothes except for a hat sometimes.
Wait, I thought they said 'genderless', not sexless. You know, the thing that irritates me is that you can be genderless (Agendered), but sexless as far as I know is not really natural. I mean, mutations possibly but a whole species...? Come on even plants have sex/gender. Lots of things don't make sense in video games though. But those things are like breaking pots and shooting doors open, not this senseless. I always assumed with every single video game species the genders vary, although by default I refer to them as male. The only possible exception is Toadette since she is apparently genderless. Are we going to call every toad/ette/sworth/bert an 'it' now? Nintendo really likes to screw with our brains... I'm confused
(QUICK EDIT: I think I found out why my gender isn't showing!! Obviously, Toadette is genderless so it's not a female! It make sense! ...but Junker had no confirmed gender either... why is this so confusing...)
